World Book Day 2019

Class 6 have had a fantastic day becoming a wolf pack (with a few extra friends!). 

Our World Book Day book was 'The Wolves in the Walls'- a story about a girl called Lucy whose house has been over run by wolves! 

We started the day by reading our book and then looking at a selection of VIPERS (Vocab, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval and Summarise/Sequence) questions where we really got to grips with the text. Then we did some amazing descriptive writing- the children could write about anything, as long as one of the characters was a wolf! 

Part of the book talks about how the wolves were watching the family through the holes in the paintings so we decided to make our own wolf pastel images with our own eyes peeking through! 

Finally, we finished the day with our parents and carers joining us to make our very own wolf eyes out of clay! 

It got very messy but we are really pleased with the results! 

 

A fantastic day had by all!

 

Well done to the Wolf Pack! 

SPAG Escape Room

On March 1st, Class 6 were locked in their classroom by a mad scientist! 

They had to follow clues, answer questions and crack the codes for 5 levels to escape! 

Each question was linked to revising apostrophes for their punctuation and grammar test in May. 

 

After a very intense hour, they managed to escape!


Phew! 

 

Thank goodness they got out in time for the SATs! 

 

Congratulations to Julia, Hannah and Alice who cracked the codes in record time and escaped first! 

Parliament Day

KS2 have had a visit from Rachael at UK Parliament Education today and engaged in a really interesting assembly about what our country's parliament is made up of.  The children behaved impeccably and asked some really thoughtful questions. 

Then Year 6 took part in a workshop based around campaigning for change.

We learnt about how people used to campaign in the olden days (from going on hunger strike and chaining themselves to railings!) to how we can campaign now; by using social media, for example. 

Class 6 were so inspired by the idea of campaigning for something that they then went on to discuss how we could change our school environment for the better! 

Our ideas will be announced soon... watch this space!  

Macbeth visit

We were very lucky to be invited to watch All Saint's Macbeth production at the Playhouse in Halifax.

We had amazing weather (in February!) for walking down to watch the performance- even though we had to rush a bit! 

The performance was incredible and we were all entranced by the actors, the music and the lighting! 

We can't wait to read Macbeth for ourselves now! We might even do our own performance! 

 

Memory boxes

As part of our DT topic, we have had to design and build something that includes a wood joint. 

We decided that we would build some memory boxes to keep things that will remind us of Christ Church when we leave. 

We spent lots of time designing our boxes and then the building started! 

We needs rulers, saws, bench hooks, sand paper, hammers and nails! 

It was really hard work- particularly the sawing! The hammering was really frustrating; the nails kept on bending! 

 

Whitby

Class 6 have thoroughly enjoyed our topic of Whitby this half term.

It has taken us on a gothic journey, where we have been following and tracking down Count Dracula!

We think that we may have even found his grave when we went to Whitby for the day.  It was so much fun- we wish that we could do it every week! 

Our English book, 'Room 13', has had us so gripped that we've not wanted to go home at the end of the day so we can finish reading! It has inspired lots of brilliant writing- from using figurative language to describe settings, to writing to Justin Bieber to correct his grammar! More recently we have been using language to build tension and get our readers' hearts racing. Please see below for a snippet of Alice's fantastic writing: 

 

 

I walked along the narrow passage, crossing my arms over my chest. I was in a haze of thoughts, so I couldn't feel the cold air biting may face. Thoughts of 'Where am I?' and 'What am I doing here?' crossed my mind. “Look at me, all alone here in the woods." I whispered, for I was sure I was alone. Still floating in my thoughts, I wandered along the empty path. A rustle to my left heaved me out of my pool of thought. I quickened my pace. My heart was racing in my chest, like an animal in a cage. Snarling. Growling.

Alice, Year 6. 

 

 

 

 

What we have been up to in class:

Task: Design a chair suitable for Henry VIII

 

Class 6 have been very busy lately! They have been using their maths skills (division, multiplication and measuring) to design a chair fit for a king! Then came the task of making them! 

Class 6 used glue guns, saws, sandpaper, hammer and nails and other tools to constuct fabulous pieces of furniture. 

Check out the pictures below to see our process and the end result. 

We are very proud of our amazing work!

Year 6 Blog

As a part of our 'Gothic Literature' topic, we visited the home of Dracula himself! The day was very overcast and brooding, which was perfect for creating the Gothic atmosphere. Luckily the rain held off and we didn't get too wet!
